Early life[edit] Both of Goodman's parents were active in social action groups.[6] George Goodman was an ophthalmologist and a founding member of the Long Island chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility.[7] Dorothy Goodman, a literature teacher and later a social worker, co-founded a local chapter of the SANE/Freeze peace group.[8] One of Goodman's brothers, David Goodman, is also an investigative journalist and has co-authored books with his sister.[7] Goodman is from an secular Jewish family.[9] Her maternal grandfather was an Orthodox Rabbi.[10][11] Raised in Bay Shore, New York, she graduated from Bay Shore High School in 1975, and from Radcliffe College, Harvard University, in 1984, with a degree in anthropology.[12] Goodman spent a year studying at the College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine.[13] Investigative journalism

In 1991, covering the East Timor independence movement, Goodman and fellow journalist Allan Nairn

reported that they were badly beaten by Indonesian soldiers

after witnessing a mass killing of Timorese demonstrators in what became known as the Santa Cruz Massacre.[14] In 1998, Goodman and journalist Jeremy Scahill
Jeremy Scahill
(later a founding editor of The Intercept, along with Glenn Greenwald
Glenn Greenwald
and Laura Poitras) documented Chevron Corporation's role in a confrontation between the Nigerian Army
Nigerian Army
and villagers who had seized oil rigs and other equipment belonging to oil corporations. Two villagers were shot and killed during the standoff.[15][16] On May 28, 1998, the company provided helicopter transport to the Nigerian Navy
Nigerian Navy
and Mobile Police (MOPOL) to their Parabe oil platform, which had been occupied by villagers who accused the company of contaminating their land. Soon after landing, the Nigerian military shot and killed two of the protesters, Jola Ogungbeje and Aroleka Irowaninu, and wounded 11 others. Chevron spokesperson Sola Omole acknowledged that the company transported the troops, and that use of troops was at the request of Chevron's management. The documentary, Drilling and Killing: Chevron and Nigeria's Oil Dictatorship, won the George Polk Award in 1998. Michael Delli Carpini, dean of the Annenberg School for Communication, said, "She's not an editorialist. She sticks to the facts... She provides points of view that make you think, and she comes at it by saying: 'Who are we not hearing from in the traditional media?'"[17] Democracy Now![edit] Main article: Democracy Now! Goodman had been news director of Pacifica Radio station WBAI
WBAI
in New York City for over a decade when she co-founded Democracy Now!
Democracy Now!
The War and Peace Report in 1996. Since then, Democracy Now!
Democracy Now!
has been called "probably the most significant progressive news institution that has come around in some time" by professor and media critic Robert McChesney.[18] In 2001, the show was temporarily pulled off the air, as a result of a conflict with a group of Pacifica Radio board members and Pacifica staff members and listeners. During that time, it moved to a converted firehouse from which it broadcast until November 13, 2009.[19] Democracy Now!
Democracy Now!
subsequently moved to a studio located in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.[20] Goodman credits the program's success to the mainstream media organizations who leave "a huge niche" for Democracy Now![18] Interview with President Clinton[edit] When President Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton
called WBAI
WBAI
on Election Day 2000[21] for a quick get-out-the-vote message, Goodman and WBAI's Gonzalo Aburto challenged him for 28 minutes with human rights questions about Leonard Peltier, racial profiling, the Iraq sanctions, Ralph Nader, the death penalty, the North American Free Trade Agreement
North American Free Trade Agreement
(NAFTA), the normalization of relations with Cuba, and the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. Clinton defended his administration's policies and charged Goodman with being "hostile and combative".[22][23][24][25] [26][27] Arrest at 2008 Republican Convention[edit] During the 2008 Republican National Convention, several of Goodman's colleagues from Democracy Now!
Democracy Now!
were arrested and detained by police while reporting on an anti-war protest outside the RNC.[28] While trying to ascertain the status of her colleagues, Goodman herself was arrested and held, accused of obstructing a legal process and interfering with a police officer,[29] while fellow Democracy Now! producers including reporter Sharif Abdel Kouddous were held on charges of probable cause for riot.[30] The arrests of the producers were videotaped.[31] Goodman and her colleagues were later released,[32] and City Attorney John Choi indicated that the charges would be dropped.[33] Goodman's (et al.) civil lawsuit against the St. Paul and Minneapolis police departments and the Secret Service resulted in a $100,000 settlement, as well as an agreement to educate officers in First Amendment
First Amendment
rights of members of the press and public.[34][35][36] Douglas border crossing incident[edit] On November 25, 2009, Goodman was detained for approximately 90 minutes at the Douglas border crossing into Canada while en route to a scheduled meeting at the Vancouver Public Library. Immigration officials asked questions pertaining to their intended topics of discussion at the meeting. They wanted to know whether she would be speaking about the 2010 Olympic Games
2010 Olympic Games
to be held in Canada.[37] Goodman was eventually permitted to enter Canada after the customs authorities took four photographs of her and stapled a "control document" into her passport demanding that she leave Canada within 48 hours.[37][38] North Dakota access pipeline protests[edit]

Goodman c. 2016

In September 2016, Goodman covered the Dakota Access Pipeline protests in Morton County, North Dakota; footage from her reporting "showed security personnel pepper-spraying and siccing attack dogs on demonstrators."[39] After Democracy Now!
Democracy Now!
aired the footage, Goodman was charged by state prosecutor Ladd Erickson first with criminal trespass and, after that charge was dismissed, with riot,[39][40] and an warrant for her arrest was issued.[39] Erickson asserted that Goodman acted as "a protester" rather than a journalist, because "Everything she reported on was from the position of justifying the protest actions."[40] Goodman turned herself in to Morton County on October 17, saying that she would be fighting the charges against her as a "clear violation" of the First Amendment, which guarantees freedom of the press.[41] Goodman was supported by the Committee to Protect Journalists, which issued a statement saying: "This arrest warrant is a transparent attempt to intimidate reporters from covering protests of significant public interest. [...] Authorities in North Dakota should stop embarrassing themselves, drop the charges against Amy Goodman, and ensure that all reporters are free to do their jobs."[42] Steve Andrist, executive director of the North Dakota Newspaper Association, also expressed concern that a journalist was one of only two people from the day in question wanted for arrest; authorities said that Goodman was charged because she was identifiable on the video footage.[43] On October 17, 2016, the case was dismissed by District Judge John Grinsteiner, who found no probable cause to support a riot charge.[44][45][46] The charges against Goodman reportedly increased the public awareness on the Dakota Access Pipeline protests.[47] Goodman had presented that day's Democracy Now!
Democracy Now!
broadcast from in front of the Morton County Courthouse.[48] This is seen as part of attacks on journalistic freedom, Deia Schlosberg was arrested in similar circumstances while reporting on pipeline related protests.[49] Recognition[edit]

Goodman has received dozens[50] of awards for her work, including the Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting (1993, with Allan Nairn)[51] and the George Polk Award (1998, with Jeremy Scahill).[52] In 1999, she declined to accept the Overseas Press Club
Overseas Press Club
Award, in protest of the group's pledge not to ask questions of keynote speaker Ambassador Richard Holbrooke
Richard Holbrooke
and because the OPC was honoring Indonesia for their improved treatment of journalists despite the fact that its forces had recently beaten and killed reporters in occupied East Timor.[53] On October 2, 2004, Goodman was presented the Islamic Community Award for Journalism by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.[54] On November 18, 2004, she was presented the Thomas Merton Award.[55] In 2006 she received the Puffin/Nation Prize for Creative Citizenship.[56] Goodman was a recipient of the 2008 Right Livelihood Award. The Right Livelihood Award Foundation cited her work in "developing an innovative model of truly independent grassroots political journalism that brings to millions of people the alternative voices that are often excluded by the mainstream media".[57] On March 31, 2009, Goodman was the recipient, along with Glenn Greenwald, of the first Izzy Award (named after journalist I. F. "Izzy" Stone) for "special achievement in independent media". The award is presented by Ithaca College's Park Center for Independent Media.[58] In May 2012, Goodman received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree from DePauw University

in recognition of her journalistic work.[59] She also received the Gandhi Peace Award
Gandhi Peace Award
from Promoting Enduring Peace, for a "significant contribution to the promotion of an enduring international peace".[60][61] On May 16, 2014, Goodman received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree from Purchase College, SUNY in recognition of her progressive journalism. In February 2015, Goodman (along with Laura Poitras) received the 2014 I.F. Stone Lifetime Achievement Award from the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard.[62] Bibliography[edit]
